Re:public Ratings and Reviews
Great spot for a Sunday night. I have been during the week and you cannot get a table, but on a Sunday evening it was quiet and private and almost like having the place to ourselves. I had the duck it was amazing. The blackened ahi app was perfect just the right balance of sweet and salty. My husband had the boar and it melted in his mouth. The bread pudding could have been split 3 ways but other than that no complaints.
Shambolic reservation process, with multiple cancellations, from the restaurant. Even when there the availability of a table took some time.
However, the food redeemed the evening and overall it was pleasant and successful. You MUST be OK with a LOT of noise and a trendy young crowd.
Except for the usual noise level, which on an empty day (Sunday) was reasonable, Re:public was good in all aspects. The food was imaginative and very nicely done, the wait staff was friendly and there when we needed them - but again it was pretty empty so no assurance if the place were packed, which I know it can be.
Hard walls and concrete floors help to keep the volume level high at all times, probably great for watching a foodball game on Sunday afternoon or Monday night. Not great for dinner with family as we did on Saturday night. Our service was fine, a bit slow where we had to flag down our waitress for ordering dinner and desert. The appetizers were also good, not great. My duck main dish too was just OK, not great. My daughter's steak was cooked to perfection, the best dish at the table. My bread pudding
Superb service. We were well taken care of by Joshua and appreciated his candor and attentiveness. Food was great. Was disappointed that all the duck was gone by the time we got there, but that's what happens when you put good food on the menu. Can be loud at times just by pure design, but when the crowd clears out a bit, it's a really nice atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Our first visit to Re:Public will probably be our last. The noise level was deafening and made it almost impossible to have conversation during dinner. The food was okay but nothing that would bring us back given the noise level. The service was outstanding.
I would be much more enthusiastic were it not for the service which started off too slowly and remained aloof throughout . I'm one for sipping on my mimosa and coffee as I review the menu, but we weren't afforded that option here.If there's one rule for brunch service it's:get the drinks going stat and keep em coming. It took a long minutes before we were even asked what we wanted to drink and then we were never offered another round when the time came. The server was polite enough, just lackadaisical . Aside form that, the food was tasty and the atmosphere comfortable and easy to enjoy . Despite service quip here,(maybe just bad day?) I'd recommend trying it out next time you're thrift or Tesla shopping in SLU.
Went here on the recommendation of a tour guide. The food was good and the drinks were great. Where it lost points was the extremely loud atmosphere and slow service (they were only about 1/2 full). Price points were alright, I bet it would be a great happy hour stop.
I met a friend for dinner. We started out in the bar area with an appetizer (seared ahi tuna) and cocktails. There only appeared to be 1 bartender servicing several tables. Service was very poor, I would go so far as to say that the bartender's attitude was on the unfriendly side. We moved over to a table for dinner where we had a reservation. Our waiter was friendly but again, it seemed like the restaurant was short-staffed because she only checked in on us twice (over a period of an hour and a half) and we had to flag her down to get drink refills. I ordered the New York steak and my friend ordered the fish. She said her fish was cold and mine was only warm. The food tasted okay. Based on this experience, I won't go back to eat dinner but I would go back to try a whiskey drink as they have a very large menu to choose from.
My friends and I love re:public as a Brunch spot. I've never been for any other occasion, but as for Brunch: it is bomb! What is really great is that they are never over-crowded and the food is excellent. The staff isn't over attentive, which I actually appreciate because I'm the type of person who will ask for something if I need it. Overall I would highly recommend re:public! :)
